91 year old Beatrice Jackman was a Danish spy during World War II. Her fiance stole a Nazi flag from the balcony of the Reichstag building in Berlin. Also in a stolen Mercedes he delivered the flag to Beatrice as a gesture of his love (or as a gesture of the resistance).
She removed the swastika and then took the red cotton (a rarity at the time) to a dressmaker. When the war ended, she wore the dress to celebrate.
The dress recently was auctioned for more than 2100 pounds.
